Bran is the remaining coating left after grinding grain. The dietary bran is called “the broom of the gastrointestinal system” because of its effect. It creates a feeling of fullness while soaking in the stomach; this is useful for those who want to lose weight. It works like a ballast material in the intestinal system, accelerates the movement of food and removes it.
Usage: bran is soaked in buttermilk, yoghurt, curds, vegetable or fruit juice or added to pancake batter, bread dough or pastry for rolls and cakes.
